Key success factors of collaboration

1 February 2023

What makes collaboration a success?

The Knowledge Management Global Network collaboration course, session 2, focused on the four key success factors of collaboration: people, culture, gravitation, and productivity.

Some tips as to these four main KSF of collaboration:

  • Respect one another; be open-minded and patient, especially with those different from yourself. Build trust.

  • When collaborating- remember that to err is human; however: 1- experiencing collaboration makes it easier to do it right from time to time, so don’t give up, and 2-learn from your mistakes, and the errors will turn into a success.

  • Understand that successful collaboration requires investment: time, thought, action, and passion. Because almost always, we will have more opportunities to collaborate than time- carefully choose your KM collaboration initiatives!

  • Use digital collaborative tools to leverage collaboration.

And my favorite one for today-

  • Use outcomes of the collaboration initiatives (the knowledge assets) as input for successive collaboration initiatives. It will make collaboration not only much more efficient rather much more effective.
